Hiding a Blackboard Course or Term

Article ID: 190
Last updated: 01 Mar, 2019

Note: This process is to hide a course from your personal course lists. It does not hide a course from other participants. It only hides it from your list as a means of simplifying your list. Faculty who want to hide a course from students should follow the instructions in Article 503: Make a Course Unavailable in Blackboard

Note: Early in each term, the Registrar and ITS begin constructing future terms that appear in Blackboard. These courses are not yet finalized and can be misleading. If you use these instructions to hide courses and terms from your Blackboard page that you don’t want to see regularly, please remember to return and unhide them when the future term gets closer.

Faculty and Students can hide or show links to old courses or terms on their my Blackboard page by following the instructions below:

  1. Select the Manage icon that appears in the top right of the Course List box when you put mouse over the module (looks like a gear).
  2. On the Personalize: My Courses page, locate the row for the course you want to hide and clear the check box in the Course Name column.
  3. Be sure all check marks are cleared in that course's row.
  4. Repeat for any courses you want to hide.
  5. Select Submit.

To Group Courses by Term:

  1. Select the Manage icon that appears in the top right of the Course List box when you put mouse over the module (looks like a gear).
  2. Check the box for Group Courses by Term
  3. Uncheck the box in the Show Term Column for terms you want to hide
  4. Click Submit.
